Man supplies illegal slot machines to bars for 22 years, totaling $4 million

OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma man has supplied illegal slot machines to bars and lodges across the Sooner state for years, federal authorities claim.

The Oklahoman reports that the target of the criminal investigation is identified in search warrant records as 52-year-old Adlai S. Brinkley, owner of Star Amusement, Inc., in El Reno. Brinkley has not been charged.

A 77-page court affidavit filed last year alleges that for the past 22 years, Brinkley has been the head of a large-scale, illegal gambling enterprise operating throughout the state.

Records show that from 2009 through 2012, Brinkley and his wife deposited $40,000 to $80,000 a month in cash into their bank account. Those deposits totaled more than $4 million.

Brinkley's attorney, Mark Henricksen of El Reno, said he could not comment on the allegations.
